Wonderful place to stay for a week. So close to everything

4 of 5
The apartment was great. Such a bonus to have a lift to take the luggage up to the first floor. The apartment was spacious and perfect for my husband and I. Bathroom was a little dark and could have done with a bit more lighting but in the whole scheme of things this was a minor problem. Magali had a wonderful book of her recommendations with everything from local attractions within close proximity, restaurants and even where to get the best baguettes. Loved our stay in Aix en Provence.
